Lets Kick Out The Idiots Without A Budget

April 11th, 2011

I get it. The two major American political parties disagree about how much money should be budgeted, how much should get cut, and where those cuts should be made. What I don’t understand is why these politicians can’t manage to do their job in a timely manner. Their job is one of compromise, you don’t get everything you want even if there are fundamental differences. No matter how diametrically opposed the two parties view points are there job is NOT to hold on to some rigid, unmoving, position. One of their key jobs is to pass a budget each year. It’s reasonable that compromises will be made and we don’t expect both parties to agree 100% with the result.

So far they are 6 months late on passing a 2011 budget. Six Months. Can you imagine what your life would be like if your project was 6 months late because you couldn’t get a long with a co-worker? I don’t know about you but I’d be fired. Alas, here we are with two parties engaging in partisan pandering hoping it will win them the next election the budget be damned. In these trying times it’s important to realize that while these politicians jobs may be to do things that help citizens their only real job is getting re-elected. I for one hope we kick out more incumbents next time around, institute term limits, or maybe both.

    There are people quoting the Rasmussen poll about 57% of American’s are okay with the possible shut down but that doesn’t mean that any of those 57% were military! I say vote the bums out!

    @Michelle

    Heck, ignore the shutdown and related problems… Let’s vote them out just because of a failure to perform their duty. This is essentially job #1 each year and these guys can’t pull it off… Pathetic (Looking at the republicans also.)

    I disagree. How do you compromise to include something that you believe is fundamentally harmful to the USA? For me thats the size of gov’t. I don’t care where the money is spent (Repubs want it here, Dems want it there, but its the fact that its spent is reason why its harmful).

    Every dime the gov’t spends is taken from our economy. They don’t produce anything.

    I have a hard time with this. While I agree with TJ that it is inexcusable that they failed to make a budget last year, I also agree with your point Jeffrey. The argument they were having over like 5 billion wasn’t the argument they should be having. They are spending 1.5 TRILLION more than they bring in taxes. Who cares about 5 billion, we have to fundamentally change everything for this problem to be fixed.
